PaaS is a category of cloud computing services that provides application development platform with a development tool hosted in the cloud and accessed through a web browser. The cloud resources are deployed and managed by cloud service providers while end-users have the liberty to use the service on a pay-per-use basis. With the PaaS solution, developers can build web applications without installing any tools at their end and deploy applications without any specialized system administration skills.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report Global PaaS Market 2015-2019 Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global PaaS Market: Amazon Web Services, CloudBees, Google, Pivotal and Salesforce Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Appirio, Apprenda, Bungee Labs, CA technologies, Engine Yard, gCloud3, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Rackspace, Red Hat and Software AG Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: One of the major reasons for PaaS adoption is to reduce the capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) associated with enterprise infrastructures. Since cloud services are provided over the cloud infrastructure, there is a considerable reduction in the associated capital and operational expenditure. The pay-per-use model makes the solution feasible for SMEs as they pay only for their required usage. PaaS providers also provide additional tools such as business analytics and network optimization integrated with the solutions, proving beneficial for enterprises. According to the report, PaaS systems help in the customization and integration process of on-site systems in an easy environment so that customers can achieve a drastically reduced TCO. PaaS vendors offer a wide variety of integration options for the systems of leading enterprise software vendors, relieving organizations' in-house IT departments from the burden of implementing these applications and related costs. Further, the report states that since PaaS does not have a globally recognized standard, end-users face issues when framing compliance standards as well as when switching services from one cloud service provider to another. Moreover, most of the PaaS application development and deployment offered by vendors are based on individual standards and parameters, creating further complexity.
